It’s not a special type of collection, but only @Sonali_Mamgain or Nathan L can explain what this means and in what context.

Hi @rinku44,

Nice catch here!!

“Charted” word here is mistakenly used. The correct word should be “Sharded”.

$geoNear can be used on sharded collections, whereas $near can't.

I will verify this with the team as well and update the lecture.

Thanks for reporting this!!

It looks like an addendum in the lecture is required re changes to this behaviour from 4.0+
